    Wherever we turn we see faces that we may not have seen before.  Each person has a unique story!  Most of us know our own family stories.  Here is an opportunity to hear stories from people from other countries.  Come and listen to people who are trying to call Rockford home!  Let's hear about where they come from, what are barriers they may face in this journey, and what their hopes and dreams are.  Let's also talk about ways to be mindful of our neighbors and include them in our lives.

    Advanced registration is appreciated! Register by: 11/12

    Ladama is a group of four women, virtuosic musicians, and educators — Lara Klaus, Daniela Serna, Mafer Bandola and Sara Lucas — each from a different country and culture of the Americas, who are sisters in song, rhythm and spirit. Harnessing music from their respective countries of origin — Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela and the United States, the group utilizes traditional and non-traditional instruments from across the Americas, but with a modern twist, to produce Latin Alternative music.

    Singing in Spanish, Portuguese and English, LADAMA brings a vibrant, energizing and utterly danceable musical. Come learn and experience how cross-cultural musical collaboration can empower communities.
